Most of us were taught the genetic blueprint we inherited from our parents predetermines our bodies, our temperaments and our health. However, Bruce Lipton and other cellular biologists have discovered that, while our genes do not change, the way they are expressed may be very much within our control. Since Dr. Lipton first observed two cells with the same genetic code, in two different Petri dishes, behaving in radically different ways, his work in the field of epigenetics has become a foundation for scientific documentation of the mind-body connection, and a bridge between science and spirituality. He explains that, based on their genetic code, “cells can do a job that contributes to the growth of the organism, its maintenance and keeping it healthy, or a cell can get into a position of a protection response. Cells need the brain to interpret the world and feed back to them what they should be doing to keep this whole system alive and floating.” Dr. Lipton’s enthusiasm for his subject is contagious, as he shares the impact his work in the lab has had on his personal life, and on his understanding of evolution and the future of life on our planet.
